Big Wet Bass #1 [Sick New BASS Music + 4 New Mixes]

5 Oct

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the 1st Edition of PB&J’s brand new weekly bass music post, Big Wet Bass. After seventy-one Dubstomp Wompday posts focusing mainly on Dubstep, we felt it was time to broaden our bass music horizons and venture outside the strict confines of such a genre-specific title.

There’s no question that the bass music landscape has seen a tremendous amount of change and growth in 2012 and this new format aims to explore that growth (and change) while focusing on bass music as a whole. In our inaugural post, we highlight everything from Pretty Lights and Zeds Dead to ShockOne and Culture Code. Also, be sure to check out the four very diverse mixes that we left for you as a bonus. Enjoy!

Dubstomp Wompday # 69 [Sick New Dubstep + OldBoy Bonus]

15 Sep

Ok folks, so here’s the story. I realize that this week’s Wompday is coming to you a few days late of the usual Wednesday posting slot, and I’m sorry for that – but it’s not just for any reason. I’ve been seriously disappointed with all the mediocre music that’s been released in the past week. That is, until I stumbled upon a local DJ right here in Orlando with some serious skills. I first heard about him through a mutual friend who told me that  OldBoy had entered a local DJ contest for a spot on the main stage at Roxy in Orlando. At first, I anticipated another average mix effort, but my friend assured me his music selection was right up my alley, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Not only was I blown away by the tracklist, but I was also thoroughly impressed with his talent. I had the opportunity to hear OldBoy spin a special VIP set at his place last night and I’m convinced that this kid not only deserves to win the contest, but could have a real future working the decks. So without further adieu, listen to a handful of solid tracks I was able to find this week (Sub Focus, Seven Lions, Spenca) and check out OldBoy’s “Start to End” contest entry mix…give him a vote if you feel obliged (if not for yourself, then do it for me because I’m dying to see this kid crush Roxy). Enjoy. Continue reading
